Philosophy Cafe

The Philosophy Café meets once a week in Fall and Spring at J & B Coffee (26th and Boston). In Spring 2022, the Café will meet on Fridays, 5-6pm. Discussion is moderated by either a graduate student or a faculty member of the Philosophy Department. The moderator chooses and introduces the topic of discussion for 5-10 minutes, then opens it up for comments and questions. The Philosophy Café welcomes everyone interested in pursuing life's great questions in an informal setting.

The Philosophy Café has been featured in The Daily Toreador.
